We step back in time retracing a medieval cobbled road that leads through a Greek archway used by the Turks to plunder Sorrento in 1558. It is at the end of this path that you will discover an unspoiled treasure of a fishing village where the daily catch jumps right onto your plate from hand-made nets.
Where we go
A glass of bubbly and a seafood appetiser sets us up nicely for a leisurely stroll down along an ancient pathway that spits us out into an olde-worlde marina that appears to pop out from nowhere.
First, we pause briefly to enjoy a refreshing glass of prosecco and to quietly drink in the ‘bella vista’ from this unique and charming locale where “old school” fishermen expertly practise their craft on a daily basis.
Our next “famous” port of call is a favourite with a Hollywood actress–in fact, an honorary citizen of Sorrento–and was used to film a scene in one of her movies. Here we are welcomed with some succulent fried fish and calamari accompanied by a glass of local ‘vino’.
Strolling through the tiny village, we take in its distinctive character and unhurried pace to arrive at a popular seafront taverna where we savour the amazing house special – crab ravioli – paired with a crisp glass of wine.
To conclude this lovely tour, a scrumptious dessert and locally made liqueur are the perfect complements to ponder the serenity of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the ancient legend of the ‘Sorrento Sirens’ said to have lured sailors to a fatal destiny–but don’t worry; you’ll only be enticed by the imagery . . . And the undeniably delicious fare.
The ancient pathway is steep, and while there are some steps into the marina, it may be a little tricky to navigate for those who are less spritely, so we do recommend you wear comfortable shoes. If need be, a local bus service operates from the marina, or we can organise a taxi (expense not included).
